DC Supervillain: Bizarro

 DC Supervillain: Bizarro

Bizarro is a supervillain appearing in DC Comics. The character was created by Otto Binder and George Papp in Superboy#68 (1958). Bizarro is a mirror image of Superman and as such is reversed in several ways to the superhero. He has mixed up versions of Superman's powers such as "freeze vision" and "flame breath" and is actually strengthened by green kryptonite. Bizarro also speaks in broken english, opposites and in negatives, for example- "me am unhappy" means "I am happy" and "me am no bizarro-superman" means the opposite.

Bizarro is one of my all time favourite characters and one of the main things that I find interesting about Superman.
